(Better Nevada PAC) – Several Clark County Commissioners are facing controversy after Ross Miller and Tick Segerblom openly disparaged and belittled local residents.
After a community event in Las Vegas’ Historic Commercial Center that saw a lackluster turnout, NBC Las Vegasreports that Miller told local shop owners that their businesses “don’t matter” and that he could “buy the property and burn the entire place to the ground and no one would care.” Segerblom referred to the shop owners as “ungrateful miscreants.”
While Segerblom has apologized for his condescending remarks, Miller – even after multiple witnesses have come forward and spoken on camera – has not apologized.
“Ross Miller’s arrogance and complete lack of understanding shows an incredible disrespect for local women and men who are trying to earn a living,” said Better Nevada PAC spokesman John Burke.“Maybe Ross should be forced to run a small business in the Commercial Center to better understand just how hard Las Vegans work every day to provide for their families.”
This isn’t the only controversy on the Clark County Commission in recent weeks. Commissioner Justin Jones is facing a Nevada Bar investigation for allegedly destroying evidence in a legal proceeding. This is not Jones’ first ethical breach.
